Hi from Canada:
I have been researching for years trying to find the institution my Father was placed in, at the age of five,
after the death of his Mother. I have finally found him and his sister in 1911 living at a "charitable institution" located at 14 Lower Breck Road.
I am most interested in finding out any history about this
institution and if any records are available.
I have been reading about Lower Breck House, and am wondering if this could have been the institution where they lived. My Father stayed there till he was eighteen, then sent to Canada with Salvation Army Immigrant Children in 1924.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
